FalconView (#1) - Converting .pdf to .geotiff (#7) - Message List
I've downloaded .pdf files. I have downloaded the public version of FalconView and am looking for the application that converts to.geotiff.
I am sort of certain what I did. Got the chart through GeoRect? and into the order I wanted. Thanks for your help. I am on to my next step with the program.

Hi Ed. I do confirm what Chris wrote. There is another trick to choose your preferred scale and see your image in the slot you want. You could choose the scale setting the Georect output to "image" but you must set the resolution of your jpeg or tiff file properly. For example to see your new geotiff between the scales of 1:1M and 1:500K you must set the tiff's resolution to 500 dpi. I've tested this and It works. This trick help you to free slot for ufficial or unufficial "chart" and get more slots free. When You page in or out You'll be able to choose more scale coverage.

I've looked for the output option of "chart" and don't see it in Georect 220.127.116.11.Ed Hotchkiss11/20/09 19:51:43 (4 years ago)
The trick for choosing a preferred scale when using georect, is to choose to output it as a "chart" instead of an "image." Then you can specify the desired display scale which will be used by FalconView to choose the order in the stack of maps to flip through as you page in or out.ChrisBailey11/20/09 15:58:33 (4 years ago)
Got the program to work. Converted the images from pdf to jpeg. Launched Georect and used nine points. Just trying to get FalconView to "see" the file. I want it to be viewed after the zoom in from the image of TIROS and before the Sectional.Ed Hotchkiss11/19/09 18:57:34 (4 years ago)
HI Ed. You have to open your .pdf file in a sw wich manage images (eg PhotoShop?...) save your new file in tif or jpg format and last then georectify in Georect your file. Afterall FV will be able to "see" your file.

Hey, Ed. PDF files are not an image format (except maybe GeoPDF). If you want to view them in FalconView, you'll probably have to save them as images (maybe using a screen capture?) and then use Georect to add the required georeferencing so that FalconView knows how to draw them as maps.joelodom11/03/09 08:49:42 (4 years ago)
